Land Clearing

Land Clearing


Clean Harbors performs seismic line, pipeline right of way and power line clearing methods that are safe and environmentally friendly — while effectively meeting your project needs.

Clean Harbors performs seismic line, pipeline right of way, and power line clearing methods that are safe and environmentally friendly — while effectively meeting your project needs. 

Our Land Clearing Services utilize mulcher and hand-cut line clearing techniques. With GPS-guided equipment, our constructed lines/clearing areas follow the pre-plot position provided by our client. Iron Wolf is used for soil separation and stump mulching.

Right of Way
Clean Harbors Line Clearing and Right of Way Clearing services provide accurate and reliable technologies for each seismic project.

Line and Right of Way Clearing services are important tasks during seismic projects. These services are typically done manually running the risk of costly mistakes and inaccuracies. Clean Harbors Line Clearing services use mulching and hand-cut line clearing techniques to safely perform line clearing techniques.

Using GPS-guided equipment maximizes our efficiency and allows us to pinpoint your desired corridor within 25 meters with no continuous line of the site produced. As a result, we adhere to all low-impact seismic cutting requirements.

  • Meandering line to block continuous line of sight
  • Low impact avoidance cutting
  • Minimal ground disturbance
  • Eliminating cut line erosion

Mulching/Hand Cutting
Clean Harbors Mulching services utilize the latest technology to safely and expertly remove underbrush in projects ranging from forestry to full land clearing. This makes way for new pipelines, power lines, source and receiver lines. We pride ourselves in fully understanding the process and adjusting our methods to different climates. Clean Harbors workers have the manpower and expertise to provide high levels of efficiency.

Clean Harbors Seismic Line Cutting services provide low-impact seismic (LIS) line cutting to the oil and gas industry in preparation for laying cable or making trails for track drilling, particularly where access is needed into fully treed areas.

Environmental Drilling and Geotechnical Drilling

Clean Harbors owns truck mounted, track mounted and heli-portable drills that can perform various methods of soil sampling, including:

  • Solid and hollow stem auger drilling
  • Casing
  • Split spoon
  • Shelby tube sampling as well as performing soil standard penetration testing (SPT)

With the vast variety of carriers under our drills there is no terrain that Clean Harbors cannot access.

Truck Mounted Drill
Our truck mounted drill is primarily used in cities and farmland (when conditioned permit). Our truck mounted drill can perform all methods of soil sampling to a depth of approximately 40 meters.

Solid Stem Auger Drilling
With augers five feet in length and six inches in diameter, our technique is a fast and effective way to retrieve soil samples and install monitoring wells in areas where no sloughing is present. Our solid stem augers are ideal for geotechnical drilling in consolidated soils.

Hollow Stem Auger Drilling
Our 4-1/4“ ID tri-lock hollow stem augers allow us to install monitoring wells in soils that are sloughing and where solid stem augers aren’t feasible. Using three-foot long by three-inch diameter split spoon A-casings to retrieve soil samples while drilling, these hollow stem augers ensure clients obtain a large enough sample to fulfill their site requirements. Our hollow stem augers are ideal for unconsolidated soils, wet conditions and monitoring well installations.

Monitoring Well Installations, Decommissioning/Abandonment and Repair
We supply all types of consumables for monitoring well installations and decommissioning. We offer varied sizes of PVC pipe and an assortment of end and top caps. Whether flush-mount or stick-up wells, we have everything you need.

With extensive well repair experience, we can easily remove and replace damaged flush-mount road boxes efficiently and cost effectively.

Soil Sampling (Split Spoon and Shelby Tubes)
Our two-foot long by 1-1/8” diameter SPT split spoon samplers are ideal for geotechnical drilling, and our three-foot long by three-inch diameter split spoon sampler is frequently used in environmental drilling. We also offer Shelby tube samplers, which are two-feet long by three inches in diameter and made from stainless steel.

Automatic SPT Hammer
All of our drills are equipped with an automatic SPT hammer allowing for consistent blow counts for geotechnical purposes.

We offer several different types of grouting units, some mounted on track units for hard to access locations and units mounted on trailers. All units are equipped with mixing hoppers and hose reels which makes them a far superior option than the typical tremie pipe and Moyno™ pump grouting units.
